at in norway. two other reasons possible, norway involved in both afghanistan and in libya. now, martha, you know, how quickly we forget the train bombings in madrid, the bus and the metro bombings in london. but if you're living in europe, you just get the feeling today like here we go again. martha? martha: here we go again. greg, thank you very much. we'll get more on that from greg burke, also ambassador john bolton is enroute to our washington bureau. we expect to have him with us live moments from now and his take on that. that'll be about five minutes from now, so stay tuned for that. >>> in the meantime, we have got this extreme weather going on in the united states. an epic heat wave that is baking a huge portion of this country. in fact, roughly half of all americans are coping with temperatures that are in the near triple digits right now. record breaking tops reported in the kansas -- temperatures reported in kansas all the way across to new york city. and it is not just unpleasant, it is dangerous in many places. at least 22 people have died related to this heat, and can there a
, they get cheap cocaine and heroin from afghanistan, and what does hezbollah get? they get proximity to the lawlessness of mexico right next to the poorest mexican-united states border and that they could have a base of operations to attack u.s. interests. alisyn: oh, boy that is scary stuff. thanks so much for explaining it to us, trace. meanwhile washington is busy today. we are awaiting several new conferences on the debt standoff. first off republicans will tell us how americans can save money according to them. why are democrats already against the plan? and thousands in a tight knit jewish community here in new york city are mourning the brutal murder of a nine-year-old little boy. the suspect is now in custody. how this horrific crime could have been prevented. plus, casey anthony will be a free woman on sunday and she is ready to walkway with a few extra bucks in her pocket. we'll tell you who is sending her money. and we'll have an exclusive interview with the for man in this case. >> she has an absolute constitutional right not to testify. everyone wonders why whether the j
on terror in pakistan's refusal to go after insurgents in the tribal region between afghanistan and pakistan. the u.s. is putting a great deal of pressure on pakistan both publicly and privately to do more on the war on terror, especially since the bin laden raid in may. now, pakistan has resisted, and one of the top generals in pakistan said, essentially, they dismissed this latest move by the united states saying that pakistan can continue military operations without u.s. money. now, lawmakers here and other media commentators, though, are very angry, and they're calling this latest move by the united states something that will severely damage the pakistan/american relationship. but it is something that the americans feel they must do in order to put more and more pressure on pakistan to go after insurgents. martha? martha: all right, connor, thank you so much. conor powell reporting from islamabad. >>> so the president a little while ago threw down the gauntlet telling republicans that they have to give him tax increases or a debt deal may not happen. with the economy in the balance, john
eliminating money with the wars in be afghanistan and iraq. that's also future looking. so i'm asking you today in terms of changes to the tax code for corporations because we know there's plenty of corporations that last year ended up paying relatively little or no taxes at all. are you putting forward anything in terms of corporate tax reform that you would be willing to undo in loop loopholes today? is. >> i think we all agree tax loopholes are something we can do about, that's definitely an area we compromise on without any difficulty whatsoever. but the point is putting in a system of tax reform that is simpler, flatter, less cumbersome especially for our business owners in the cost of doing business. so this is what we're looking at. but we are definitely against any tax increases, any tax increases alone. martha: all right, so goldman sachs if they don't get $4 trillion, what happens is a plan that's short of $4 trillion in real spending cuts, they're likely to downgrade their rating on u.s. debt. what do you think about that? >> well, you know, that's unfortunately what we're face
